Description

Late Season Harvest was created specifically for the Fibre Art Network show ‘Canadian Content’ , starting it’s travels at the Remarkable Symposium in Queenstown, New Zealand and returning home after the International Quilt Festival in Houston Texas 2012.  I really appreciate the opportunities for exhibitions provided by this group.

During the four years of our RV travels throughout North America, my husband was able to work as a combine operator on the summer-fall harvest, one year starting in Oklahoma and then proceeding to follow the harvest through Kansas, Colorado, Montana and back into Alberta.  Each fall since that first harvest excursion, he has returned to participate in the southern Alberta canola and wheat harvest.  Riding shotgun in the combine with my husband as allowed me to get some fantastic photographs, some of which inspired this piece of fibre art, Late Season Harvest.

Circa 2011.
